    Default Fort Fisher Basin September

    I would like to take Linda back down to Fort Fisher Basin in September. We enjoyed exploring the marsh areas and watching the wild life and catching some reds. Always a pleasure to have a fellow Red Xr for some fellowship fishing. If anyone is interested in going would love to have you.

    I canít promise no waves but I will choose the the best day and tide. The Basin is real shallow in a lot of places so if you want to get out of the yak to stretch or cast a line no problem.

    I would love to go depending on dates. I’m heading to Oregon the week of 9/17 but am free any other time. I attended last years Bay River event and I think I am a RedXer but I never got a confirmation.

    Hoping for a morning like this for the get together. The afternoon return to the launch was definitely no fun especially for Linda. Winds coming straight from the launch gusting around 17 mph with waves splashing over the bow and to shallow for mirage drive. I made the mistake of giving Linda half a paddle but she was a trooper and never gave up and paddled over half way of the Basin to the launch, not easy in PA 12 I can assure you.

    Looking at the Saturday 7th or 14th since Bay River is 2 weeks later. Normally I go down early on a Friday so not have to deal with the weekend crowd. The wind and tides is the most important thing to look at before going. From experience you do not want a low tide and high wind especially coming from the boat launch on your return paddle.

    Do you camp, rent a room? I could make it on both of those dates so if you don’t mind me joining in I will be there.

    The Fort Fisher Surf Meet most people rent a room or camp being that most people come in Friday for the Saturday morning meet. There is a few who live close enough that they just do a turn & burn on Saturday.


    Since this is just one day of fishing Iím not sure if I will rent a room for the night but most likely will over in Southport if Iím beat and tired.

    The Basin is separated form the Cape Fear River by a civil war era rock wall and the beach on the other side. Very shallow and at low tide water can be as low as a foot or less. If you venture back beyond Zekes Island there is a marked channel close to the wall that holds some deeper water. The wind direction and how hard it is blowing can make some pretty decent waves in the Basin but if that is predicted I wonít recommend on going. If you venture back beyond Zekes Island and go exploring the channels in the grass areas donít be caught in there in low tide. If you are the exploring type of person like me a gps can be your friend when you look around and everything looks the same when you are ready to return to the launch ramp. I personally love the Fort Fisher area for kayaking fishing.

    I take plenty of water, sunscreen and snacks and a rain jacket just in case a pop up rain hits being you are at the coast. I Hope this helps and inspires you to come and fish and explore a new area.

    Yes we did meet. I stayed in Rascals dad camper. I’m serious about going. I want to start exploring the coastal areas. I might even stay an extra day or two and sleep in my van.
